    One thought on “Daisy's Perfect Word”

    1. DAISY'S PERFECT WORD is probably the most adorable children's book I've read in the last few years. And as much as I liked it now, I know I would have absolutely ADORED this book if I had read it when I were young enough to be the intended audience.Daisy, who I can easily see as an up-and-coming book reviewer herself one day, loves to play with words. She keeps a notebook with all of her favorite words that she divides into numerous categories (like "wedding words" "made up words" and "quiet wor [...]

    2. Daisy is a lover and collector of interesting words. She even makes up her own words with her best friend, Emma. Therefore it’s only natural that, when Daisy learns that her teacher, Miss Goldner, is engaged to be married and will be leaving the school before next year, she decides to give her the perfect word as a present. But finding the perfect word isn’t easy. Will Daisy find one in time?This book is very gentle, much like the Princess Posey or Mercy Watson series, making it a nice one f [...]

    3. Similar to most kids her age, Daisy is a young girl who enjoys things like lemonade and flowers. Daisy is different however because the things she loves most are words. In fact, Daisy likes to record almost every word she hears. Whether storing them in her purple polka dot notebook or just inside her head, she likes to categorize them as she goes. Some of her lists include: "WOW words", "Words for difficult times", and "Wedding Words".Daisy has a list devoted to wedding words because her teacher [...]

    4. I have no doubt we'll be hearing more from Daisy, the heroine of this new title. Since Daisy collects words, she decides to give a special gift to her beloved teacher, Ms. Goldner, after she announces her impending marriage. She spends the next few days trying to come up with the perfect word, but it isn't easy to do so. Once she does, her classmates agree that she has chosen the best word for the occasion. I liked the precocious nature of Daisy and her creative side, not to mention her proclivi [...]

    5. This book is precious—I would have liked it even more if I had read it as a child! Daisy loves words, and when she finds out her teacher, Miss Goldner, is engaged and moving away at the end of the year, she comes up with the idea to find her the perfect word. At the going away party everyone agrees that Daisy’s present was the best. This book would be a great beginning chapter book for younger readers. It is not a difficult read, and even includes simple pictures of the characters. I loved b [...]

    6. Cute story about a young girl at school. Good for beginning chapter book readers, but nothing too spectacular. Daisy is fascinated (actually obsessed would be a more fitting term) with words and making lists. Some interesting vocabulary can be learned this way, but it is a tad overdone. We'll see what the next in the series has to offer.

    7. This 2013 Intermediate Fiction IRA nominee was nicely written. The story of a girl searching for the perfect gift for her teacher's going away present leads to the search for a perfect word. It's a slim volume but it would be a good book to share with younger kids to grow interest in collecting words. We even get to dip into daisy's word notebook at the end.

    8. Daisy loves words and we learn a lot about that as she is trying to find the perfect word for her teacher who just got engaged. My daughter really loved this book and I thought it was cute too :]

    9. Another great new character. I LOVE the word lists that Daisy makes. And her engagement gift for her teacher? The perfect WORD!
